Recipes - Cajun Baked Catfish

 Servings: 4


1 pound catfish
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs or panko
1 tablespoon Spice Krewe Bayou Blend
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 lemon cut in quarters (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 450°.
  2. Mix cornmeal, bread crumbs, Spice Krewe Bayou Blend. Lightly brush yogurt on all sides of fish.
  3. Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  4. If you have a baking rack, spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. If you don't have a baking rack, use a spoon or brush to coat the foil with oil.
  5. Put the cornmeal and Spice Krewe Bayou Blend in a shallow dish or plate, and mix.
  6. Coat fish with cornmeal mixture by either pressing each fillet into the cornmeal mixture, or placing fish and cornmeal mix in a sealable container and toss to coat. Make sure both sides of the fish are coated.
  7. Place fish on baking rack, or foil-covered baking sheet *place fish rounded-side up.
  8. Bake uncovered 15 to 18 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the fish flakes with a fork.
  9. Serve the fillets while they are hot (squeeze lemon juice on fillets, if you like). Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
